New Projects Close to Home and Around the World
Workload Study in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Milwaukee County’s Delinquency and Court Services Division (DCSD) recently implemented several reforms to improve the effectiveness of services. To help ensure capacity, NCCD will provide a workload analysis of human service worker positions, estimating the number of workers needed by DCSD to provide required services to youth. The goal of the workload study is to help the agency use its staff resources effectively and ensure sufficient staff to promote positive outcomes for youth.
Intake Tool for Adult Protection Workers in Singapore
NCCD is working with Promoting Alternatives to Violence (PAVE), a family violence specialist center in Singapore, to develop an intake assessment tool. The tool will assist PAVE social workers with deciding when and how quickly to respond to reports of vulnerable adult and elder abuse. The project kicked off in January, when NCCD staff met with community stakeholders and the PAVE workgroup in Singapore.
